Hamilton, Ontario -- September 16, 2013 -- The 15th Annual Tow Show took place at the Careport Centre in Hamilton, Ont., over the weekend, and it looks like it may have been the biggest to date. The Tow Show was organized and presented by the Provincial Towing Association of Ontario (PTAO).
The PTAO asked attendees for a donation to McMasterâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Fund in lieu of charging admission, so exact numbers are hard to determine. Estimates place the total attendance at over 1,500 people.
Radio advertising promoting the Tow Show aired on local radio stations in the run-up to this yearâ€™s event. Although trade shows are primarily for industry, the PTAO decided to invite the public in this year. It was a rare opportunity for the professional towing and recovery industry to show members of the public their latest equipment and dedication to safety, customer service and training.
